Saying hello.....and thanks

Recommended Posts

Hello to all of my friends here and the people who have joined in my absence. Mrs. S is growing so fast! Thank you to Cat and Darlen who helped me get my account re-activated, and a heartfelt thanks to Darlene for praying with me over the phone last Monday. My Mom made it through surgery and is doing very well. She will come home probably next Friday, and I go back into the hospital on Monday.

 

2008 has been a wonderful year in so many ways. Monday will be my final, and third surgery of the year. I've lost a lot of weight and had my left knee replaced. On Monday I'm having my right knee replaced. The transformation in my attitude, and outlook on life has been dramatic. A year ago I had no desire to live, and today, I have so much to look forward to. For me, life began at 50! I have not worked since May 08 and have so enjoyed having some time to spend with my Mom, as I have recovered. I have learned about Faith this year, and re-discovered my spirituality. I know little and have much to learn, but I am on the right track.

 

Our preps have been invaluable this year while I've been unemployed. When I return to work I'll have much to do to replenish the shelves, and I'll have functioning legs to carry me through experiences and challenges that I have not been able to do for 30 years.

 

In the spring I will begin riding horses again, and Caveman and I are planning a trip to the Oregon coast next fall to walk on the beach, hand in hand, and also do some crab fishing. Our marriage has blossomed with the new me, and I have so much be thankful for. I have some other changes in mind for the future too, but am stilling working on them in my head. Life is great!

 

I am going to check to see if the hospital has Internet service for patients, and if so, will take Cavey's laptop so I can keep in touch.

 

It's so nice to peek in and see old friends, and so many new friends too. smile

Mare! I remember you although you may not remember me. I was a lurker for a long time before I joined last year.

 

Last week, I talked to Darlene on the phone and we were worrying about different people who had dropped off the site..and she mentioned you. I was praying all week that you'd turn up!!

 

How nice!

 

Hugs!

Hello yourself! You have been sorely missed. So happy to hear from you and things are going well for you and yours. A year of change and blessings for sure! I do hope the hospital has computer access so you can keep in touch and let us know progress on the knee. Spring will be here before we know it and by then you will be all ready to rock and roll. I used to ride horses just a little in younger days. Not now for many years but they are beautiful animals. Take care and don't stay away so long next time!(((mare))

Hi Mare! So goooood to see you here again. We've missed you. New walking ability and back to horses soon too? star And FAITH! Yep, I'd say this was gooood!

 

Be sure to check out the stirrup turner thingies....so you don't have any excess strain on those new knees you're getting. Unless you ride English...don't think those stirrup leathers would strain as much as the hunk of leather for the Western saddles.

I'm so glad you are feeling better, and things are really looking up for you.

 

When you get to walking after your new knee, be sure to add your miles up and put them in the Spa with those of us who do that. smile
